Story set in the island of Raasay Scotland

Author: Roger Hutchinson.

Calum MacLeod lived at the northern tip of the remote Scottish island of Raasay, miles from the nearest road. Over the course of fifty years he watched as neglect and decline took their toll on his small community until he found himself the last man left. Calum decided to do something about it. He built a road. One spring morning he set off with a pick, a shovel and a wheelbarrow, and alone in an empty landscape began with his bare hands a romantic, quixotic venture that would dominate the last twenty years of his life. Calum's road would become a powerful and beautiful symbol of one man's defiance against the erosion of his native culture.
